The Rev. Marvin and Peggy Strom celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at Lake Muskellunge in Wisconsin.
Marvin and Peggy were actually married June 22, 1963, but because their eldest son was born on their anniversary they have celebrated any summer day except June 22 for the last 48 years. This year they and their family gathered for a week of celebration on Lake Muskellunge. They are the parents of three sons, Bruce (Helen) of Elgin, Brian (Debra) of Princeton and Brent (Pamela) of Gurnee. They also have six grandchildren, Caleb, Michaela, Kyra, Joseph, Daniel and Madeline.
Marvin is retired from active ministry as a Baptist pastor and Peggy is a retired medical social worker.
